GCCL – Newsletter to Clubs – February 2018


This newsletter records the key points from the County League Committee Meeting on February 19.  It is shorter than usual but that does not reflect from the importance of the subjects covered.  Apologies for the delay in posting.




The final accounts for the 2016/17 year are attached below.


Officials Courses


The usual spreadsheet detailing the requirements to attend Officials Courses has been posted on the website at   Teams are more than welcome to send more than the minimum requirement to courses.


Full details of the dates and venues of courses, and how to book, are on the Training page of the GACUS website (  It is very much hoped that clubs will take advantage of the new “Club Umpire” course and qualification.


The League will reimburse two delegates per team for the Introductory course, four for a club hosting an Introductory course (Scoring or Umpiring), one for the Club Umpire course and 100% of the course fees plus a £50 bonus for a Level  1 umpire that joins the appointment panel and stands in nine matches or more.
